I am an extreme fan of beans! As a nursing mother however, not sure if my son appreciates my fanatics though :-).
With the recent winter freeze storm here in Atlanta, GA, I started getting that warm and fuzzy feeling for comfort food. So in addition to working from home Friday, I decided to let my crockpot work from home as well.
So here’s what I did:
– Red (October) beans- along the lines of a pinto bean
– Black beans
– Bay scallops
– Abstract Spice (avoid bouillon cubes, they are loaded with MSG)
– Dash of Cajun spice or cayenne
I filled half the pot with water. Poured in 1/2 cup black beans and 1/2 cup red beans. I added 2 tbsps of my season all and Cajun spice. Turned the crockpot on high and walked away for about 8 hours. I then mixed approximately 1/2 cup cream and turned the crockpot down to low. Last, I added the scallops allowing them to slow cook releasing all their sweetness to the soup, yum!
Garlic bread or hot water cornbread are perfect sides!
